For Boston it was the seventh defeat in the 13th game of the season, Schröder missed the chance to force extra time in the last attack. The Wagner brothers Franz (8 points) and Moritz, who remained without a sense of achievement, also lost on Sunday night with the Orlando Magic. The 92:104 against the Washington Wizards was the tenth defeat for the Florida team.
